Open Your Eyes

I want to introduce you to Sebastian Miquel aka abre/tus/ojos on Flickr. I met Sebastian via Flickr, although never in person, when I first joined about three years ago and I have been mesmerized by his work ever since. Sebastian photographs LIFE. His photographs are so evocative partly because he looks beyond the surface to capture what is behind any given scene and he makes it seem effortless. He puts himself on the front line and captures his hometown, and one of my favorite places in the world, Buenos Aires, like no one else.

He connects with the people of his city, her streets and architecture, her ghosts and lost corners and he shares it with us. The images that he captures outside of his Buenos Aires are so profound and moving that you feel like you've been there yourself. I learned that Sebastian is a professor of philosophy in Buenos Aires and somehow it did not surprise me at all. The sensitivity in his images and how he is so open minded and seemingly free seems to explain it somehow.
